California Mortgage Loan Originator Continuing Education

Mortgage loan originators licensed in California must take a total of 8 hours of NMLS continuing education. If you are licensed through the Department of Business Oversight (DBO), you must take a 1-hour CA-DBO course along with 7 hours of standard education. If you obtained your loan originator license through the California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE), you may take the comprehensive 8-hour course without DBO credit. CalBRE licensees may optionally take the CalBRE-specific package, which provides NMLS credit as well as CalBRE credit towards your real estate license renewal (CalBRE Sponsor #4056).

If you are unsure whether you are licensed through the DBO or through the CalBRE, visit http://www.nmlsconsumeraccess.org to look up your State License status.
